Penises come in all different shapes and sizes, so there’s no such thing as a ‘normal’ penis. Some penises are short and thick, some are long and thin, some lean to one side. The penis may be darker or redder than other skin on the body and may have veins sticking out. Pubic hair grows around the penis, the testes and the anus.

The head of the penis has lots of nerve endings so it is very sensitive and pleasurable to touch. A person might rub their penis when they masturbate, or their partner might rub it during sex.
